Why an expensive power supply?

Hardware Clinic - www.hardwarezone.com.sg - forums.hardwarezone.com.sg
I see a lot of small cases from China with power boards and adapters. You can also buy mini power supplies from picoPSU (USA), HDPlex (Germany) etc.

If I build a non-GPU integrated graphics PC seems like many of these pump out enough watts and I can build a small PC. Even 120W is enough if no GPU.

So my question, why invest in a more expensive ATX power supply if these can do the job?
